4 stars This is a one-shot band that released the album "Spring" in 1971, in '92 the USA prog rock label Laser's Edge put it on CD. That re-release contains 3 previously unreleased bonus tracks. The sound of Spring is a 'Mellotron's heaven', no less than three members use this marvellous instrument! So it isn't no surprise that this album is loaded with Mellotron (flute - and violin-sound) but it doesn't harm the compositions, there's no overkill. All 8 songs from the original LP from '71 sound warm and melodic with strong vocals, many floods of organ and sensitive electric guitar work and beautiful twanging 12-string guitar play. To my surprise, the 3 bonus tracks doesn't contain Mellotron. The emphasis in these songs is on the organ in fluent rhythms with nice, slightly shifting moods. Certainly one of the gems, beloved by the 'connaiseurs'. By the way, many years later drummer Pique Withers became famous with DIRE STRAITS.
